Our tour operator booked us a day room at Eka hotel on our return from our safari. Our vehicle was subjected to a security check on the way in which was very quick. The staff at reception and the porters were friendly and helpful. The room itself was clean and bright. The toilet and shower were modern and spacious. The... More

Safe, clean business-style rooms (not a resort) with free internet. Great food in the restaurant. Staff are very well trained and helpful. I can not comment on value as Kenya Airways (1.5 hours late so missed connection) paid for my stay.

I found the location of this hotel really convenient for the airport and with business meetings in the area. Traffic is an issue and you are only 30 minutes from the airport (that 4kms Nairobi time) and about an hour (6 kms rush hour time ) from the city center. The rooms are really just average and while the lack... More

Very nice modern hotel that is located close-by the Nairobi Airport. And, if you know Nairobi, you know how important that is. The rooms are modern and clean and have a fantastic rainfall shower. The bed is hard, but typical of every hotel I have ever stayed at in Kenya. The food is good, but not great. Recommend highly for... More

The hotel looks pretty nice from the outside. It's conveniently located for the international traveller being pretty close to the airport - although we only experienced one, we're told that Nairobi's traffic jams can be formidable. Security check of our vehicle on the way in were thorough but swift. Our check-in was smooth; I wondered why Nairobi hotels all had... More

As many of the readers do realize Nairobi is not a cheap city. It was really surprising to our family that hotels were asking for a price that you see in "big cities" in the US, Germany and France. Then I asked around and came across EKA hotel. This property is just next to 2 other airport hotels that asked... More

Our family of 7 needed a hotel near the airport. This was an excellent choice. Very nice rooms, lots of security which is needed in and around Nairobi and the food was excellent, not your usual hotel fare. Highly recommend this hotel. Ann and family from Washington D.C. June 2013

I was disappointed with the EKA. Very modern hotel, but a hotel you could find in any large city. Food and rooms were average. Beds were very hard. Biggest issue I had was that we left our room locked and came back to find the door wide open--fortunately nothing was taken. The workout room and pool were very nice. We... More

At the beginning of a two week trip to Kenya, we found the Eka Hotel to be just what we were looking for upon our evening arrival at Kenyatta airport -- close to airport, modern facilities, easy to book, comfortable beds after a long journey, excellent breakfast. A great place to stop over coming or going from the airport.
